Herring declares victory in Attorney General's race

From the campaign of Mark Herring for Attorney General:

Mark Herring has won the race for Virginia Attorney General. After a thorough and complete canvass, Herring defeated his opponent Senator Mark Obenshain.

“Voters in Virginia have spoken, their voices have been heard and I am honored to have won their votes and their trust to become Virginia’s next Attorney General,” Attorney General-elect Herring said. “Over the course of the past week, a thorough and extensive process has ensured that every vote has been tallied and accounted for. The margin was close, but it is clear that Virginians have chosen me to serve as the next Attorney General.

“Today we begin the process of governing. I look forward to working with Virginians from all regions and all background, Democrats, Independents and Republicans to move our Commonwealth forward,” Attorney General-elect Herring added.

Following the vote canvass – a process overseen by bipartisan Boards of Elections in every locality, as well as volunteers and official observers from both parties to audit the voting process and ensure votes are tabulated correctly – Herring came out ahead of Obenshain.
A dramatic repetition--and reversal--of 2005's narrow victory of Bob McDonnell victory over Creigh Deeds.
